Post Mortem  
So. The Chicken Ranch is closed down, and the post show blues have set in.

It always happens. Sometimes I'm more sad than others when a play ends, because you know that organic piece of live theatre will never be the same, ever again. I wasn't sad for the work to end, necessarily, because, you know, I hurt and stuff. ;) But I will miss the people. And I'll get to work with some of them again one day, if I'm lucky. I'm just having play withdrawal. TBLWiT was a singular experience for me, not loving to perform in musicals, but it stretched me as a dancer and a singer, and for that I am grateful, if not crying that I don't have six more weeks of shows.

God forbid. LOL. My joints would stage a revolt, I'm pretty sure.

There's a few other plays that look good for the season... and the theatre's doing Grease in May. Makes me wonder if I should break my 'no musical' rule yet again. Something to think about.

It's been rainy and lonely today to suit my mood, and I've watched every episode of TV that I've missed for the last six weeks. Glee ROCKS, Supernatural is gettin' good (wtc - Paris Hilton?!), Dexter looks promising and Bones.... *is giddy*

Anyway, there's some post show pics under the cut.

In the dressing room, in my "Hard Candy Christmas" outfit.  Yes I had a a few solo lines.  Scary.

At my Party with Natasha.  (Taddy Jo, another whore)

All of Miss Mona's girls

An actor prepares...

With Heather (Miss Mona)  And Valerie, who was the hair stylist for the show.

On set at the Chicken Ranch

I hated this dress like you read about.  Talk about shoving 10 lbs of crap in a 5 lb bag...

Anyway, still no show pics.  That's okay, though.  These have inspired me to start the 30 day shred.  Wish me luck.  Though by the looks of my chub, I might have to extend it to the 90 day shred.  Or the 120 day shred. ;)

I feel:: blahblah
I hear:: Stolen - Dashboard Confessional

You look fabulous. I really wish I could've seen the show. I have another actress friend here with two kids (her kids are older than yours but she also has a full-time job) and have watched her tear her hair out with all the rehearsals and shows. I'm really proud of you, hon! Congrats!!!

The pictures are awesome! I can totally understnad the post-show blues. You meet a lot of great people - you'll undoubtedly miss them. But you'll have lots of happy memories too. :D

ALSO - Isn't Glee FABULOUS?? and SPN - I've been pleased thus far. Oh it's nice to have tv back I'm sure. I am on Jay's laptop until my new power cord comes in the mail so I haven't download my shows and I'm getting QUITE cranky about it.

Have you got to the OFFICE WEDDING yet???? It's SO good. I TOTALLy teared up. A MUST watch!

Of COURSE I love Glee... and Finn! Woohoo! Talk about adorable. The thing is, I've KNOWN teachers like that~ they're caricatures, but pretty close to dead on. And I think I've actually said, "That girl makes me want to set myself on fire, but she can sing." I need to find some Glee icons. :D

I have watched The Office wedding. It was so sweet. I still heart Jim and Pam.

Oh, and it turns out Aiden's okay, it was a battery problem. And last month I ordered TWO power cords. I don't like to be without. I guess two years is the life expectancy for those things.

I adore Finn too! We listen to the Glee Cast Recording of Midnight Train ALL the time. Bethy loves the 'da da da da' part so she sings along. :D

And YAY for Aiden's recovery. I should have bought two battery cords last time I replaced mine but I didn't and now I'm paying the price. These two I just ordered are the fifth and sixth that I've had since getting Adelle. PAIN IN MY BUTT I'll tell you what!

Fabulous pics! I love that dress you hate; it's so pretty!
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on October 14th, 2009 12:52 pm (UTC)
It was COVERED with sequins, and it had a net underskirt that got caught on everything...it might have looked alright, but it was a nightmare to wear.

Ugh! You've changed my mind... Sequins and netting underskirts do not make for comfort *shudders*

Love the picts. I also think you really look good in the dress that you hate. :)

I have to loose weight - fast too. My sister has picked me as her MOH and I have to fit into the outfit. *gulps* Carrie, HELP - what are you doing for the 30day shred? I'm kinda getting panicky here.
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on October 14th, 2009 12:55 pm (UTC)
I'm doing a modified Daniel Fast (No meat, bread or sweets) and the video The 30 Day Shred, by Jillian Michaels. It will kick your read end and jump start your body into change.

Wooohooo! You in that cowboy hat ROCKS! I love it! :D

I'm glad it all turned out great. Yes! You should do GREASE!

Shredding... *sigh*

Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on October 14th, 2009 12:53 pm (UTC)
Shredding is sighworthy. I hurt today.

(That's Nolan Kyle's cowboy hat. :D}
